Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

Fingers crossed it stays dry in Nottingham and she gets to play on grass. Last time she was there she got moved to indoor hard and lost to Foretz.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

Wow, never knew that match was actually played indoors.
Always risky with a grass tournaments. So little of them, and then weather always plays a part.
Hope something good happens in this few tournaments she plays.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

Mirjana will play a british WC in the first round of Nottingham.
Then probably Pliskova (the lesser) with her huge serve

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

Mirjana's flat drives and powerful all-out attack have proved particularly successful on indoor courts in the past, as we've seen in Doha and Quebec and Midland at various times.

Any quick surface where points can end after a couple of big shots and she doesn't have to think too much, really; she ought to do fairly well in any of those conditions, if fit (indoor hard/carpet or outdoor grass).

By the way, here is her draw quarter in Nottingham. There's a chance for vengeance against Puig in a possible QF:

(1)Monica Puig (PUR) v Magda Linette (POL)
Nastassja Burnett (ITA) v Q
Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) v Shelby Rogers (USA)
(7)Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) v (wc)Katy Dunne (GBR)

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

Pliskova would be a stern challenge because of her huge serve. I don't know if Puig is great on grass, but she's aggressive. I'd favor Mirjana over her just on grass experience. At leas she has a good first round draw.

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

THIS website mentions a stream from Aegon Trophy, but they've list it as an ATP challenger (there's a €64k ATP event in Nottingham this week), so they might just stream the men's matches...

Anyway, good luck Miki!

It's our local tournament so we're off there in a few minutes and will give a report later. I'm sure it will be a good one !

Re: Mirjana's 2014 Grass Campaign

lost first set 4-6

If she loses this match, this will be her worst one I think
